The College Years is a look deep into the vaults of The Sound of Young America. Take a journey with us every week as we post a new program from our salad days.

Today's theme: Baseball

In this episode, Jesse first talks with Tim and Eric. They play a little amateur baseball trivia between themselves. Tim and Eric are the creators of TimandEric.com and "Tom Goes to the Mayor" on Adult Swim on Cartoon Network.

Next Jesse talks briefly with Will Carroll. He's the author of “The Juice: The Real Story of Baseball's Drug Problems," which covers the steroid scandal in Major League Baseball, and co-author of The Baseball Prospectus. They discuss local baseball, Barry Bonds, and injury and trade updates.

Jesse also talks with Bill “The Spaceman” Lee.. He's written the best-selling memoir “The Wrong Stuff” and “Have Glove, Will Travel”," which cover his career in amateur, minor, and major league baseball. He talks about getting older and still playing, pitching in senior leagues and staying passionate.
